Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Is it a fair fee?

I have asked for help before in repairing myself my Mitsubhishi WD62525 TV. I bought a service manual and tried to troubleshoot my TV. It has a blue screen with snowy white cloud in the middle. I read on some forums here that one cause of this problem are bad capacitors on the power ckt. board. So I tried doing it myself, When I got to the chassis, I was stucked and never get into the power board. So finally, I've asked a service tech to come over. Initial diagnostic charge is $95, So the tech guy told me that there 6 bad caps that need to be replaced on the poer board. So I was right to begin with. Now here comes the bad news for me, when I asked the tech how much to repairing my TV. He told me $900 and he needs to take the TV and bring it to his shop. It will take 2 to 3 weeks to repair my TV. Is this right what I'm hearing? So I've questioned the tech guy why is $900 to replaced 6 bad caps (cost maybe $2 to $5 each). Then he mentioned how about the DM module? Then I realized what is the connection between the bad caps and the DM module? Am I hearing it right? My beef is that a fair charge or am I getting fooled because I don't know what I am talking about? Please make your comments anyone who are service tech or had experience with a service tech.

    Tim,

    Thanks for your comment. When I tried fixing it myself, I got into the chassis. I've removed the cover of the chassis but stucked when I was trying to get to the power board. I removed a lot of screws, I beleived there was another cover for pwr board. I was stucked. Obviously, I don't know what I'm doing, maybe you can send me some pictures or instructions how to get to the power board.

    Thanks in advance.

I own a tv repair shop in jacksonville, fl and I know that with that model we always send the chassis to mitsubishi for an overhall this would cost around $900 but we send it to mitsubishi, we dont do it ourselves because there are many parts that should be replaced that only mitsubishi can get, they dont sell them to anyone. BUT your problem just needs the 2 caps in the power supply replaced for now. in the future you might need the rest of the work done but my thoughts are if its not broke dont fix it! So i would take the chassis out and replace the 2 caps in the power board and be done with it untill it brake again. If you cannot get the chassis out send me an email and i will give you some help.

Powers up screen is black


If you bought the TV withing the past 12 mos., contact their Customer Service and request advice or contact the store that you were you bought the TV. They should have giving you a 12 mos. guarrantee on the TV. If any advice they may give you does not work, you should try to send it back for replacement or repair.
If you bought the TV over 12 mos. ago, the company will offer you the option to pay a fee to offer you advice or to send it back for repairs.

Hello.
I'm sure your local computer repair shop may take a look at it. But in my experience, most of the PC techs that I have worked with and worked for have a ton of certifications for networks and PC repair, but do not know how to fix most problems on a game console. It never hurts to try though. It may be a simple fix that I haven't tried yet. I'm still learning some tricks myself. Here at FixYa, they do have a repair shop refferal system. Look for the Repair Service box and enter your zip code. It should give you service centers near you. But every service center will charge you to diagnose the problem, then charge you for parts and labor to repair it. Some will put the money you paid for them to diagnose the problem towards the repair fee, so ask about that. I hope this helps. I wish you much luck.
